Now The Children…..
Okay. So the president is going to speak to the children. I suppose having a president speak to students around the country isn’t itself a bad thing….but seeing what has been going on in this country since Mr. Obama became president, well that scares me. I don’t trust him. Not one bit. Sure there are all kinds of worksheet and discussion type activities that the teachers are supposed to go over with their students before and after the president’s speech on September 8th. Maybe that will happen. Maybe not.
What exactly does Mr. Obama want America’s children to know? To learn? Will he instill pride in them for their country? Or will he give them the idea that we should apologize to every other country in the world about how “bad” we are? Will he let them know that, as they grow up, working for their money is a GOOD thing? Will he mention that the government wishes to control them and to make sure that they grow up expecting hand outs? Will he discuss bailouts and take overs? How about how to balance a budget?
So many issues so little time. How will he be able to fit that all in, in just a mere 20 minute speech?
